Georgetown vs. Providence Free Basketball Pick

January 16, 2013

gtownTonight’s spotlight game is the Providence Friars at the Georgetown Hoyas.  The game is to be played tonight at 7:00 pm EST at the Verizon Center. Bookmakers have Georgetown as 7 point favorites.  The public is about split on the betting with slightly more betting on Georgetown.  The reason that the public is not all over the Hoyas like they usually would be is because they have short memories. The Hoyas just came off a beat down at the hands of Pitt two games ago 44-73 at home.  Providence just beat Seton Hall by 12 as well. These two facts look very enticing to the general sports bettor.

When looking at the two teams style of play you have Georgetown who slows the game down and plays great defense. The problem with this is that if their defense isn’t sharp, they aren’t designed to play catch up on offense.  They score an average of just 63 points on offense and allow only 55 points defensively per contest.  Providence plays similar style basketball. They score only 68 points per game and allow 62.

Against the Spread: Providence is better ATS this season posting a 6-5 mark to G’towns 4-6.  In our opinion Providence’s only impressive win was vs. Seton Hall the other day.  Other than that they have been beating up on total cream puffs. G’town has beaten the likes of Texas, UCLA and Tennessee.  We like Georgetown to win and cover this game.
